Data to support fully-functional trial versions?

i offer a few peices of knowledge, however, not strictly data from

1. you could liken these fully functional demos as to the online
distibution of music by bands who employ a pay what you think model
for full albums, groups such as Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails are two
that i am aware of. in both circumstances they were used to great

2. Codeweavers.com have in the past used free software as a way to
entice new users over. I am aware of at least two schemes whereby
they simply gave away their software for one day or under some
externally influenced criteria.

iPhone Prototyping

I'm looking for tools and techniques to build medium-fidelity
prototypes of iPhone applications, ones that support iPhone gestures
like swipes but that can be created and modified more quickly than
full-blown applications developed with the iPhone SDK.

Good RUP Resources when it comes to UI Documentation, etc.?

I've been tasked at helping our BAs sift through some documentation,
to work within the confines of the RUP methodology. The documents
that I'm working on are the Storyboard artifact, the UI concepts,
and the UI Document or UI Specs. document.

The first two are pretty self explanatory, but I'm struggling with
what's usually in the last one.

The way I see it is this document will be a bridge for people in
systems and people on the business side to rally around the screens
and "be on the same page", literally.

So, my question is, what usually goes in this UI document?

Smart-HDL: Hotel Control

The word “Hotel“ derived from the old French word “ hostel “ meaning

If hotel do means residence, what does it really consist of? Does it
have all the home facilities? At some things, Yes. There is a place
where to sleep, a place to sit, a television is available too to
watch, you can listen to music from the hotel source and perhaps a
nice veranda too just like home.

The word hotel conjures association as a “traveler’s haven“.
